** In his review of ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'', Smeghead - like [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Doug Walker]] in his review of the film - incorrectly states that all of Dr. Seuss's books were written in rhymes when, in fact, he wrote two books in prose: ''Literature/The500HatsOfBartholomewCubbins'' and its sequel, ''Bartholomew and the Oobleck''.

** In his review of ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'', Smeghead - -- like [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Doug Walker]] in his review of the film - -- incorrectly states in an offhand mention that all of Dr. Seuss's books were written in rhymes when, in fact, he wrote two books in prose: ''Literature/The500HatsOfBartholomewCubbins'' and its sequel, ''Bartholomew and the Oobleck''.



** He also [[{{Misblamed}} blames]] Creator/JoelSchumacher directly for ''[[Film/BatmanAndRobin Batman & Robin's]]'' numerous problems, when in reality, the film was hampered by excessive ExecutiveMeddling and bad writing that Schumacher had nothing to do with. Even his pointing out that Schumacher told the actors to behave as though they were in a giant toy commercial rings hollow since Schumacher only did that because he was rightly exasperated with the studio's nosiness and realized he had no creative control over the final product.

** During a segment in his ''Film/AfterEarth'' review he goes on to assert M. Night Shyamalan is in fact, Gary Whitta (the co-writer credited with writing the film alongside Shyamalan). Not only was this not true, but many pointed out that, during promotion for the film, Whitta attended SDCC. A lot of his fans corrected him and he conceded in the comments he jumped the gun.

** Much like WebVideo/AniMat, he has gone after UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump and his supporters ever since he ran for president, although he tends to measure the times he does it. Even his review of ''Hillary's America'' wasn't filled with Donald Trump snark, and even the one reference to Trump didn't even mention him ''by name'', nor did he mock conservatives in the same review (in fact, he notes that there are plenty of legitimate reasons to not like Hillary Clinton and that Democrats are capable of being horrible people). On the other hand, if referencing him is unavoidable (such as his cameo in ''Film/GhostsCantDoIt''), Smeghead can let loose.

** In the ''Film/CutthroatIsland'' review, he notes that the film casts Creator/GeenaDavis as an ActionGirl when she was mostly known for comedies at the time it was made, [[Film/TheFly1986 "Mostly."]] This neglects her work in both ''Film/TheAccidentalTourist'' and ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'', neither of which are comedies but ''are'' among her best-known films, in part because she won an Oscar for the first and was nominated for the latter, not to mention that the latter film has strong action elements.

** Happy Madison films, including, but not limited to those starring Creator/AdamSandler, are another popular target for the Smeghead.


* InternetBackdraft:
** The first part of his ''Film/TheFourthKind'' review had its likes almost outweighed by dislikes because people didn't take kindly to Smeghead riffing on Creator/MillaJovovich. Either that, or some people thought that it actually was the movie, as shown by several comments on the video.
** Likewise, his review of ''[[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Meet the Spartans]]'' used to have more dislikes than likes, most likely from fans of the movie. Although most people pointed out in the comments section of the video that it was likely a PolishTheTurd attempt.


** During a segment in his ''Film/AfterEarth'' review he goes on to assert M. Night Shyamalan is in fact, Gary Whitta (the co-writer credited with writing the film alongside Shyamalan). Not only was this not true, but many pointed out that, during promotion for the film, Whitta attended SDCC. A lot of his fans corrected him and conceded in the comments he jumped the gun.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Think that Creator/DougWalker was the first reviewer who watched ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' before watching [[Film/TheLastAirbender the movie]]? [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Well, think]] ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants again!]]''

** In his review of ''Film/FantasticFour2015'', when discussing what Josh Trank's vision was, he mentions that an earlier script that Trank worked on with screenwriter Jeremy Slater was more akin to a Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse film, and the film itself only became the way it did after Fox got involved. However, it's only accurate to say that the unfilmed script was Slater's vision; Trank wanted a film that was darker and grittier, with BodyHorror, whereas Slater wanted a more lighthearted work.
